    Oh yes, my friend has not failed to tell me. In fact I think that's the first thing he mentioned (several times also), the two deer parks I mean. Yes, that's a positive for not getting an offer from the college I applied for (King's), tourists seem to, for some reason, fear crossing the bridge over to the other side of river Cam so there aren't many at Magdalene. There's a mound which squeaks when you clap in front of it? I don't think I've quite understood the mechanics of that. XD
    I'm only really concerned about the Edexcel Maths grade boundaries as I've already checked the mark schemes and so I have a pretty good idea of what marks I've got. I don't think it would be as useful for other subjects.
    Yes, even though I think I've mentioned to my parents how anxious I am, too many times, I still don't think I've fully expressed it. It's like something that can only be understood if you've been put in a similar situation before. Oh no don't worry, I have no need for another's awe of Cambridge for me to feel pride for the university, it's magnificent enough already. :lol:
    Well, he has to get that into the conversation somewhere! Yep, here's a link to a youtube video explaining it (I won't lie, I don't understand it either, and I can't be bothered to try to (shh don't tell anyone)).
    I can't decide whether to look for Maths and Biology or not, because those are probably the ones that will give the most away.
    I don't even really mention how anxious I am. It's hard, because everyone says 'oh you'll get in' and it makes me feel even more nervous!
    Sure, sure I'm sure it's great, just not as great...

    1) You're*

    2) GCSE AND A Level Student.
    3) Was I talking to you? No.
    4) She asked, I gave my opinion. You don't know how well you've done after looking at boundaries at all. Marking can be different, and they only make you worry more. She might as well sleep and have less to worry and an actual chance to sleep.

    Anybody who wants to kill some time, watch this - an 8 bit videogame of Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog. Brilliant.

    Aha, so it's either a reward or a consolatory prize. Either way :thumbsup:.
    My offer is AAA, I'm fairly sure of two of them, so I thought I might risk it for slightly more than a chocolate biscuit. Have you got anything planned?

    Sleep.

    What is the difference between knowing not and knowing when you wake up?

    You'll only worry yourself more
    but.. what if you can't sleep? when you lie in bed with no distraction, that only allows you to dwell. better to stay up and entertain yourself!

    he's good but my favourite is Tarantino, so maybe after moonrise I can have a tarantino marathon... bit of kill bill would be great
    ah man the tarantino films have been on my watchlist for so long! eh, might rewatch pulp but I'm actually warming up to the idea of a wes anderson marathon myself

    also, this is a shoutout to my friend micheal who's watching but not posting. get involved, micheal!

    Is AQA coming out at midnight?
    In theory, yes, along with Edexcel and OCR. But knowing AQA, they probably won't release them for another few months...
